147.8 Bug Zapper Black Light!


We had so much fun playing with our newly discovered black light in our garage! We recently played black light miniature golf and loved that, so we had all kinds of ideas for what to do with a black light in our garage! Let's start a roller rink! Let's have mini golf in our garage! Open a disco! Of course we won't really do any of that, but it was fun to play pretend with the ideas!

I think if we were younger we would invite all our friends over to dance in the black light. We would tell everyone ahead of time so they would wear stuff with white showing. White clothing reflects the black light in a way that our eyes see it as glowing in the dark.

This brought back memories of when my older cousin Mike came to stay with us for a summer. I was 10 and he was 19 or so. I thought he was so cool. He aimed a black light he had brought with him at a white-accented tapestry that hung in our living room. Man, that looked cool with the rest of the lights turned off!

We got this Stinger black light in 2005 at Lowe's. Amazon has some you can order online for delivery! It really zaps bugs, too. :) It is not meant for indoor use, but we use it in our garage. I love it when I can use things in more than one way!

I maintained my weight perfectly yesterday. I went for my mile walk with Oreo and Raffle in the park in the 90 degree weather. Here is what I ate:

Small bowl of Special K and organic soy milk
El Monterey beef and bean burrito with salsa
2 burritos of homemade chicken fajitas
One scoop of Breyer's mint chip ice cream that my husband surprised me with when he brought the sour cream and tortillas that I requested


Homemade fajitas:

Shredded cheese
sour cream
Small flour tortillas
beef or chicken washed and cut into strips
butter
minced onions
minced red bell pepper
no-salt spice mix

Sautee the onions in a few pats of butter on low heat for a few hours until the onions are clear and carmelized the amount you like. Stir every 10 minutes or so. Add the bell pepper, stir, and let simmer while you cook the meat. Put a few more pats of butter in another frying pan and add the washed meat that is cut into strips. Fry it on all sides at medium low heat until it is cooked through, about 20 minutes. Spice the meat with the no-salt seasoning.

Spread sour cream on the tortillas (2 per person). Sprinkle shredded cheese over the sour cream. Scoop veggies and meat and put that on top of the cheese. Roll the tortillas up into burritos and enjoy!
